Yes, that's what I meant.

I agree that it's "interesting". Now someone really knowledgable will
need to have a look at this. I can only imagine that somehow the
devices contain data from different points in time, and that it's too
far apart for the aggressive txg rollback that was added in PSARC
2009/479. Btw, did you try that? Try: zpool import -d /dev/lofi -FVX
